Hi All

not sure if anyone is aware but the german techno group Scooter have used the Amateur Hour Chorus on one of their new songs from there new album.
I'm unsure if its a sample because like a lot of scooter tracks the singing voice is ultra sped up so sounds like a chipmunk!
I haven't heard the full track yet just a clip but its very clearly Amateur Hour Chorus.

If you have the song name or a link that would be very helpful :)

I haven't heard the full version yet but I do like it now im over the shock of realising it was sparks being covered in a happy hardcore style!
I reckon Ron & Russ would like this, remember they did go though a euro-dance phase with GSASV and Plagarism so its not a million miles away from some of those tracks.

Cool stuff! Thanks for pointing it out

Cry. Definitely.

Garbage. Scooter were mildly entertaining 15 years ago but have just not had any new ideas since.

im a massive sparks fan obviously and a massive Scooter fan. whilst I know they are not everyones cup of tea they have a well used template but over the years they have experimented with a lot of different dance styles in their singles/albums so I don't agree they have not had any new ideas in the last 15 years.

I'm sorry but it's just absolute c**p! We used to have to put up with Jive Bunny over 20 years ago for that kind of rubbish and it was a real pile of sh**e then. Just Awful.
